This was such sad news and my thoughts and prayers are with Stephens close family at this sad time for them.
I only knew Stephen for a short time having only been at the school for just over 3 years in my role as Electrician, but never the less whether I was working in his chemistry class room, or in his cottage in Most Farm we would engage in friendly and interesting conversations about various topics that we both had an interest in.
Stephen loved the great outdoors and like my self loved nothing more than walking and hiking, and hence his interest and involvment in the DOEA, and he could often be seen walking at a fast pace around the school complex with a friendly smile and sometimes wearing his hiking boots.
Stephen will without a doubt be greatly missed by KC staff and pupils but if it’s any consolation we should all be thankful that we had the privilege to know and work with Stephen, and students past and present can reflect with great pride that Stephen gave them a part of the knowledge they required to help them thrive in the big outside worid.
RIP Stephen Fell and it was my pleasure to have known you.
